Willamette Falls

Oregon is known for it’s rain and the weather is certainly living up to its reputation this fall and winter.  We have had a lot of rain here–way more than the average for this time of year. Over the last few weeks, the rivers have been filled to the brim, Mt. Hood is covered with snow, and some flooding has occurred.  Today, Rob drove up to Oregon City on an errand.  He pulled over and took a few shots of the swollen Willamette River, and of course, Willamette Falls raging and foaming with so much extra water going over.  It was an awesome sight to see that much power roaring and crashing over those rocks, when it wasn’t that long ago when the river was low and lazy.  What a difference a few weeks make!
